Tandem paragliding from Schmittenhöhe

    Top thermals and upwind at Schmittenhöhe

    Especially if you want to enjoy the great view for as long as possible, the thermals are crucial. The strong updraft makes the thermals on the Schmittenhöhe so strong. Thermal flights or cross-country flights are best between April and August. For example, plan your paragliding trip to the Kaprun high reservoir dams with us!

    We always land at the landing field near Fürth (Kapruner Straße 2, 5721 Piesendorf, train station).
